By: William Horton
May 5, 2009 - PRLog -- Christian drug rehab is becoming the number one chose for addicts and alcoholics looking for a new life full of hope and restoration. When we asked addicts and alcoholics that have been to at least one drug and alcohol treatment center prior to a Christian drug rehab why they chose a faith based program, the answer was seemed clear. One alcoholic stated, "I am tired of the same old same old and I wanted clear direction on how to live life free from drugs and alcohol. I do not want to live life based on what a random stranger or people in twelve step meetings say. I take in the advice I receive from them but I want clear and proven direction so I research the bible and see if it lines up with what God would have me do. If it does, I move forward and this process has been working for me for the past 7 years. With that being said, I also put great value on twelve step meetings and the benefits of what twelve step fellowships offer. The twelve step groups have also proven to be very effective. If a Christian drug rehab is able to successfully combines the two methods, I found that to the best overall solution for me. Prayer, meditation, Christian counseling, and daily scripture reading really deals with the heart issue. Fellowship with other addicts and alcoholics brings hope and also accountability."

Christian drug rehab is a top chose for addicts and alcoholics in 2009 because most of them offer very strong substance abuse education along with biblical principles. Addicts and alcoholics are naturally very self-centered individuals and as the big book of Alcoholics Anonymous says, it is the root of the disease. Teaching addicts and alcoholics to step outside of themselves and do God's will for their life is a challenging adventure but extremely rewarding to say the least. A Christian drug rehab that offers a program designed to achieve this goal seems to have high success rates.

A Christian drug rehab that met the criteria we looked at was Transformations Drug and Alcohol Treatment Center located in Delray Beach, Florida. Transformation’s offers drug and alcohol treatment programs ranging two weeks to ninety days with aftercare and follow up for a period of one year upon graduation. We took a look at Transformations Christian Track program and we were impressed with what they offer clients.
Most of the staff at Transformations Drug and Alcohol Treatment Center are Christians themselves but the Christian counselor heading up the Christian drug rehabs program is:
Nathan Oliver MA, IMH.
Christian Drug Counselor
BA in Psychology from Biola University
MA in Counseling from Denver Seminary
Nathan Oliver has spent the better part of a decade working to help people better themselves and their relationships. In addition to his degrees in Psychology and Counseling, Nathan has worked extensively with H. Norman Wright, a renowned psychologist who is known for his Christian Marriage Enrichment programs, and John Brown University to develop curriculum and development programs. It was his passion for helping the homeless on the streets of Denver and at the Denver Rescue Mission's faith based program that led him to helping people overcome their addictions at the Transformations Treatment Center. When asked what made him want to join the team at Transformations Treatment Center, he answered "I was impacted by the staff and desire to impact the lives of those wanting to seek recovery through a Christ centered approach."

When we looked at the curriculum and the activities they lined up with what a successful Christian drug rehab should consist of. The bible, prayer books, and the book Addiction and Grace were all being used. Clients we attending church, twelve step Christ-centered meetings and they also volunteered at local homeless shelters performing service work for the community of Delray Beach.  It is with great pleasure to recommend Transformations Drug and Alcohol Treatment Center and their Christian drug rehab program for all the work they are doing with addicts and alcoholics.
